What in-depth work has been done to allay fears that 250,000 passengers a day at the Old Oak Common HS2 super-hub will not overwhelm surrounding urban village streetscapes, including both roads and pavements?

Transport for London (TfL) is working with the Department for Transport, HS2 Limited and the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) to ensure designs for Old Oak Common station can meet the needs of future public transport users and local communities. TfL’s understanding is that a large proportion of passengers using the station will interchange between HS2, Great Western and Elizabeth line services.

HS2 Limited is also working closely with the OPDC and the London Boroughs of Ealing and Hammersmith & Fulham to develop designs that enable an appropriate bus, cycling and walking network in order to serve the needs of the station and the wider community.

It is likely this will evolve as the OPDC looks to provide greater detail to underpin its aspirations for regeneration.
